WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden gave a speech to mark one year since the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
The speech happened at 2:30 p.m. from the White House grand staircase. You can view the full video of the press conference in the video player above.
During the speech, President Biden reiterated his push for the passage of common-sense gun laws.
“It’s time to make our voices heard. Not as Democrats or as Republicans, but as friends, as neighbors, as parents, as fellow Americans,” Biden said. “It’s time to act.”
President Biden, along with the First Lady, originally visited Uvalde after 19 students and two teachers were tragically shot and killed by a teenage gunman at Robb Elementary.
About a month later, the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act was passed by Congress and then signed into law by President Biden.
KSAT will air “One Year In: Uvalde,” a special tribute honoring victims’ legacies and highlighting their families’ unwavering pursuit of change and accountability on Wednesday night.
